Biography

Jason, Matt and JP are The Roses. We are brothers in musical taste. Jason and Matt can go back to banging bongo's outside Grateful Dead Shows in high school, they have played music together in other bands, specifically, delusional, where they released 2 CD's, toured and giged had some fun and burned out. The Roses started with songs that Jason had written for a solo project and initially intended to be released under his name. Jason asked Matt who normally plays lead guitar to play bass on the project and enlisted JP, who, although having played drums for years, had never found a band or project to play live. The result was electric and the project had to change because it was so much more than just the songs that Jason had intended. The Roses, although only together for a few months, quickly found and defined an immediate and raw sound so it had to be a band. The Roses love to rock! We have had some great shows so far and we cant wait to play more and record more!!

Lyrics

Meet Me Here

Written By: Jason Phin

You said you wanted to leave
You said you wanted to go
Honey I don’t believe
Just what you’re doing to me
Just what you’re doing to me
And if I get out alive
I’ll write another song
About a girl who leaves
To find a bird of her own
To find a bird of her own
Her own
Her own
Et quece que je pense
De tout cela?
Cetait déjà vu
A toute fois
Cetait déjà vu
A toute fois

I like to drink my tea
And watch the setting sun
Honey you’d better believe
I’m not the only one
I’m not the only one
And if you get out alive
You can meet me here
You’ll find your bird has flown
Follow the weight of the stone
Follow the weight of the stone
The stone

Messy Paradise

Written By: Jason Phin

Questions on Love I leave to the Poets
They have got more soul than me
Questions on life I leave to the preachers, it's their monopoly
Questions on freedom I ask the world "What will it take to set you free"
The rest I keep inside my mind.
My private fantasy

When you feel like it's over, baby that's the time
To do it again for old time's sake, keeps me coming back to life
Nothing changes, just the faces
And we keep on paying the price
For all the games that we play in a Messy Paradise

The answer to the politician is that we are already on common ground
The answer to the final question, there's nobody sticking around
The answer to "When's freedom coming" it's already going down
The rest I keep inside my mind
Scream it out, dont make a sound

When you feel like it's over, baby that's the time
To do it again for old time's sake, keeps me coming back to life
Nothing changes, just the faces
And we keep on paying the price
For all the games that we play in a Messy Paradise

My Reflection

Written By: Jason Phin

Anytime I hear you call
I’ll come running back to where you hide and make sense of it all
This time
Idolize all that you say
Make believers out of make believe games you play
All right

There’s someone watching every night and day
Tells me everything is fading away
It’s my reflection
It’s my reflection

Analyze all that you do
Run in circles searching for the things that frighten you
Tonight
Legalize all that you see
Noting matters anymore in the reality
Well all right...

There’s someone watching every night and day
Tells me everything is fading away
It’s my reflection
It’s my reflection

Anytime I hear you call
I’ll come running back to where you hide and make sense of it all
This time
Legalize all that you see
Noting matters anymore in the reality
Well all right...

There’s someone watching every night and day
Tells me everything is fading away
It’s my reflection
It’s my reflection
…Rockstar
